I want to tell you a story. That’s what my 5 year old granddaughter said to me as she struggled with the door of my Subaru Forester. You see, I have the opportunity of picking her up most days after her long day of kindergarten and we hang out until my daughter gets home.
“What is it,” I ask her as I get her situated with her seat belt.
“Well, I was sad because my friend didn’t want to be my friend or play with me today and I asked Mrs. B for help. Mrs. B noticed I was sad and called me over. I told her my problem and she talked to my friend and I together. Then at the end of the day, my friend gave me a piece of gum!”
Listening to her story made me smile. I’m so grateful for a teacher that notices her students and helps support more than academics, but also understands the 5 year old mind. So happy to hear her stories.
